I consider my self a foodie and this was an outstanding dining experience. We started with the best margaritas in the quaint bar. We moved out to the patio with a great bayside view. Our salad was tasty. Our entrees were magnificent! Definitely a memorable meal! Bon appetite!

Stopped for lunch. Seating is available inside or out. I had the deep fried cajun oysters with fries,my wife had the vegan quinoa and black bean loaf,both were excellent. We also ordered some nice mixed drinks. The Waterfront is a top notch establishment from my experience.

I have eaten here twice and was pleased both times. My fresh scallops were sweet and cooked to perfection in my mind. The grains and sauced served with it were a perfect accompanint.
